Christine SieglWolf Theiss Rechtsanwalte GmbH & CoKG

Wolf Theiss Rechtsanwalte GmbH & CoKG is a respected player in the Austrian capital markets space and stands out for its extensive DCM and structured finance expertise, including derivatives, while also demonstrating expertise in ECM. This strength is not least based on the team’s close intertwining with the firm’s robust banking and finance practice led by Nikolaus Paul, who is also a key contact for capital market transactions. Matthias Schimka‘s promotion to the partnership in June 2020 underlines this DCM focus, which translates into regular instructions from issuers and includes programme work and regulatory matters. Counsel Christine Siegl is another key contact for the latter as is Claus Schneider, who is also experienced in debt, hybrid and structured capital market issues. Richard Wolf, whose expertise spans the intersection between corporate finance, capital markets and M&A, and DCM and structured finance expert Alexander Haas are other names to note.
